I am still on a UK license and there is some suggestion I will need to convert to an IAA license in the future. I stopped using a paper logbook completely about a year and a bit ago, with the amount of flying I am doing it was just too tedious, the computerised version is much quicker. I am still no...

As a follow up to this and for future reference are the following Documents: AIC Nr 7/02: PILOT LOGBOOKS - JAR-FCL FORMAT FOR RECORDING OF FLIGHT TIME m For pilots operating in accordance with JAR-OPS, details of flights completed may be computerised, using the format shown in IEM FCL 1.080 or 2.080...

Didn't see an AOC here for them, I presume they operate a fractional ownership arrangement?

Firstly, where do you want to live? It's not clear from your post? You say that the job market is good in Australia. I don't have any direct experience but I have met quite a few Ozzys at my current Airline and the picture they paint is pretty grim. You can expect a couple of thousand of hours instr...

What that appears like to me is a job advert that is suited to match only one person, perhaps someone who needs a Visa or a validation. Good immigration lawyers play similar tricks in the US. Why on earth would you advertise a super niche job like that with FAS and not in Flight International. Rated...

Davy I am not entirely up to date on the world of training, but the last I heard was that they had closed that loan package to Student Pilots. Do you know for sure if that has changed?

One thing I will say and this applies to all flying schools. No one is going to hold your hand. Beyond a certain point in your training it's up to you to make progress. Pilots after all are supposed to be self starters. That means you have make the running and as often as not you tell the instructo...

Where do those presenters get that accent/voice from! They sound like aliens. It's a real shame when something like that happens, a student should be having the time of their lives during flight training. A Student was killed at the school I attended shortly after I left as a result of a botched go ...

EI-MAY & Hibby Your experiences are reflective of mine. I already had an ICAO IR so I was able to do a very shortened course under the UK CAA, it was very cheap at the time, but you need to have UK ATPL theory exams and a UK CPL. It cost me 5000 Euro for a 15 hour course, but then I paid about ...

I tried to do an IR with them a year or two ago. It was a complete disaster. I was available 7 days a week but they could only fit in lessons here and there, I would have a gap of three or four days between lessons and then when I finally got a slot I would turn up to find my name scratched out on t...

Milo , Before going down the route of formal complaints and objections, wouldn't and couldn't it be better for everyone to go and have a grown up conversation with said neighbour? Along the lines of explaining your safety concerns, and explaining to him that you are not an uninformed NIMBY. You sou...

You could quite easily get a job as a Cabin Crew/Flight Attendant in Ryanair, but it is quite easily the worst job in the world.

I didn't know John but I recall that I met him by chance passing through Coonagh one sunny Summers afternoon. He had just started up and was in the process of taxiing out when the tailwheel castored hard over, well thats the best way I can describe it. He called myself and companion over and we mana...

I think the fact they numbered the Helis and had names tied to machines meant that people acted a little more restrained! Over the years at both Kerry and Donegal I have witnessed some, ahem, eye brow raising flying....
